The Maharashtra CM also said that they will discuss the issue if it comes up before the government. “When the issue comes up before the government, we will check the legal validity and take a decision. My stand, as well as that of Shiv Sena, will be decided when the issue comes before us,” Thackeray said.
On Tuesday, Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray denied the claims made by an NCP Minister that a proposal on Muslim reservation has been put before the Maha government. Earlier, the Minority Affairs Minister, Nawab Malik had informed the Legislative Council about the state government’s plans of providing a 5% quota to Muslims in education.
Talking to the media outside the Vidhan Bhawan in South Mumbai, Uddhav said, “No proposal has come to me regarding Muslim reservation. We will check its validity once it comes to us. We have not taken any decision yet on it.”
Launching a verbal attack on the BJP-led opposition, Thackeray said, “I also urge those who are creating a ruckus on the issue to save your energy to use it when the issue comes up for discussion. The issue has not come up yet. The Shiv Sena has not clarified its position yet. Let us see when the proposal comes up.”
